Re: Color forth source. Its in the manual, but its a little hard to read. The updated disk version has the source in ascii. I don't know what assembler they used. I'm guessing they started with the code from the manual.

Trying to work out some reasons a C language Forth I wrote about fifteen
years ago gives me segfaults, trying to get deeper understanding of how the
pieces of fig Forths fit together, working on a model that should be easier
to convert to "modern" 32 and 64 bit CPUs than what is available. Don't
like the typical register handling in other versions of Forth for 6809. Etc.

The 6800 version is one I was once somewhat familiar with.

Colorforth was figforth. The archive contains an updated disk version plus
> source., but they took out the cas support.

Do we have source code for Colorforth?

An editor for superforth that works in 80 col would be nice.

Yeah, it would. I'll have to get a coco3 emulator running here before I can
work on that.
